Renderings of Belle Plaine Building Approved Tuesday Night

As we posted last night, the revised plans for a new residential building at 931-933 West Belle Plaine were approved last night by residents in attendance at the General Meeting of Buena Park Neighbors.

Above is the architect's rendering of the new building. According to the PowerPoint presentation that was shown at last night's meeting, the revised plan has 17 apartments, rather than 20, as were in the first set of plans. The building is set back from the sidewalk.

The building will be four stories tall, with the top floor slightly recessed because of a front balcony. The ground floor will provide parking and space for utilities, and the second, third and fourth floors will contain 17 one- and two-bedroom units.

There will be 20 parking spaces (11 inside, 9 outside) and interior parking for 20 bikes. There will be an inside elevator and two staircases. The building will be 44' tall, with the fourth floor being 37.5' tall when seen from the street due to the recessed units. The residential buildings on either side of it are 39'2" and 38' tall.

As BPN said in its Facebook post last night, construction is anticipated to begin in the spring.

  1. DNA has a story about it. Since I'm in a good mood here's a link.

    Glad to see this is going to happen. We need more market rate housing in Uptown. Now on to appropriate locations on Broadway etc for new developments.
